with the clintons, they had a very long history and years of service. how do you manage through a crisis? what happens when that prices outside starts to shake the confidence inside? how do you get control of a narrative that is escaping? all those things are available when you look at 2008 and even in 2012. some people get their lessons from the board room. some people get them from the classroom. some people get them from playing field. some people get them from the battlefield. i get mine from the campaign trail. personal and organizational success. we will talk a little about a few things tonight. i want to do three things tonight. first, i want you to love campaigns the way i do. we'll talk a little about what it's like to be on a campaign. i will tell a little bit of my story for the student trying to navigate your way to success, second. so maybe we can open up some questions around that. finally, question and answer. i hope we can explore a little bit about language and by experience, talk about what people are seeing and take some of these lessons a way to our everyday life. we will s
it because we had so many misstatements starting with ms. rice, secretary clinton has been the most forth right in term its of this actually being a terrorist attack. did we just find out yesterday we finally got the fbi on the ground at the scene but almost four years after the attack. the tainted evidence is going be if it is still there is not going to be as valuable. this s aborningled investigation that should have been quick, forth right and we need to know the answers. >> geraldo: talk about timing, senator isaacson and well, you should since the senate is now you in recess and does not readjourn until the 13th of november, the week after elections. has the obama administration succeeded in making this a nonissue for the november 6 election? >> i think that they are trying to make it a nonissue for the election. but there has been too much misinformation. senator corker and i respect secretary clinton greatly. she has been the most the forth right of anybody in the administration. the president has hardly talked about it. ms. rice has told what she was told to say not what i think
to my defense. i was called a racist, bill clinton was called a racist. i have seen bill talk to you and others saying donald trump is a good guy. we have a good relationship and he is a good guy. i believe the hate tried he had and maybe doesn't have any more for obama was unbelievable but people are afraid to to take obama on. i don't know what it is. >> this is amazing four years later he saved the democratic convention for obama. he said in 2008 they played the race card with me and they planned it from the beginning. >> he felt that very strongly. >> you feel he did that fto you? >> he did. you mention certain things it's racist. any time you criticize obama whether it's trump or anybody else you get the ratest thing going. it's very unfair, not nice. i enjoyed, i must tell you. i love thinking about running. as you know i was doing incredibly well. people liked what i said whether it was about china or opec ripping us off or whether it was about obama. i wish he were a great president. i am a republican. if he were the greatest president i would be a happy guy. it is not workin

[applause] >> thank you. thank you all. thank you very much. and a special word of thanks to a friend and someone who i admire greatly, general snowcroft. his many years of distinguished service to our country is a great tribute in every respect. thanks also to john alterman and csis for hosting this conference on maghreb transition and seeking stability in an era of uncertainty. i wish to acknowledge dr. tehrat for his involvement in this important conference and members of the diplomatic corps as well. what are we here? why is this conference so timely? to start with, what happens in this dynamic region has far reaching consequences for our own security and prosperity. we know very well that it is most important to the people of this regio
call on this from clinton, illinois. matt is waiting on the independent line. good morning. caller: mitt romney needs to go after the whole libya at incident. he may have made a few missteps regarding coming out with information, but he needs to layoff of that, because it is one thing that he can actually use. i do not know if it will help his foreign policy, because obama can just come back and say -- that is what i did -- but that is something he will really have to focus on if he wants to do those foreign policy speeches. host: thank you for giving us a ring this morning. you want to show you a little bit from that speech released yesterday. mitt romney is expected to say that he knows the president hopes for a safer and freer and more prosperous middle east -- host: we want to bring in now from "the washington post" a reporter to talk about this speech today. thank you for joining us today. caller: thank you for having me on. host: what does mitt romney have to do in this speech? caller: as was mentioned this morning, this will be late in the game for him to be giving a speech
a bum rep. if you read the conversations, the clinton tapes, he's expressing concerns and fears to clinton, and clinton is sympathetic with these things. needed a better pr organization to help him out. >> okay. by the way, is that patrick seal? >> is that patrick seal? patrick focused too much on the conspiracy theories of why certain things happened in the region. >> turning to egypt, you interviewed a lot of people in the movement. you mentioned the 1990s, obviously, where the, you know, basically the egyptians put down, and it is islamist insurgeon sigh and stapped to death, end of the movement. >> which, by the way, the leadership was against. >> the islamic -- >> in prison. >> yeah, yeah. they were much more. the question is, you know, is there any likelihood of the head of al-qaeda to resuscitate an al-qaeda-like group in egypt or other groups or egyptians gone through that in the 1990s seen as a dead end? how do you see that sort of militant movement in egypt playing out? >> here's the thing. first of all, all of the friends entered the political process. they renounced
, as president clinton said. the reality is that any past or on tax reform that promises to cut rates will either end up failing to reduce the deficit or failing to protect the middle class from a net tax increase. you can, at most, achieved two of these goals. anyone pushing a plan purporting to accomplish all three is not telling the truth. the sooner we are honest with ourselves about this, the easier it will be to negotiate an actual compromise on taxes and on deficit reduction. in 1986, we chose to cut the top rate and protect the middle class. we did not seek to reduce the deficit. simpson-bowles seeks to cut the top rate and reduce the deficit but did not shield the middle class. -- from a net tax increase. we need a third approach that project -- prioritizes reducing the deficit and protecting the middle class and is willing to forgo a reduction in the top rate and that is what i am proposing today. what should this proposal look like? it would have three principles -- first, as in 1986, it still makes sense to reduce the number of expenditures in the code to the extent possible. in figur
has to eat lunch and be in this room because secretary of state hillary clinton will be coming shortly after that. i hope everyone is hungry. and, please join me in thanking all of our speakers. thank you. [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] >> live picture here on c-span2 as a csis symposium on north africa begins a lunch break. that is the center for strategic and international studies. they're expected back around 2:00 p.m. eastern. secretary of state hillary clinton will speak at that point. we'll be back to show you that live. elsewhere on the c-span networks we have other live events to tell you about. the new america foundation is looking at north africa today, too. their focus will be on the arab spring and the civil war in syria. that gets underway at 2:00 p.m. eastern and that is on c-span3. and the beat goes on the road to the white house. vice president biden, fresh off last night's debate, is in wisconsin today with his wife jill to campaign at the university of wisconsin in lacrosse. we'll have live coverage for you starting at 2:45 p.m. eastern, on our co
. and hillary clinton didn't exactly get into the back and forth but did admit there were questions on both sides, take a listen. >> it is certainly not the case that the assignment of security personnel at diplomatic facilities is made here at the white house. nor should it be. the decision is made about requests for security personnel, and security matters, they're made at the state department. >> to this day, to this day, we do not have a complete picture. we do not have all of the answers. no one in this administration has ever claimed otherwise. >> reporter: you know, brian, senior officials do admit to me they wish they had a clean explanation, they don't. intelligence officials are still uncovering evidence that leads them to believe that the attack in benghazi was somewhat spontaneous, meaning it was never planned in advance, but was opportunistic, meanwhile, nobody is satisfied with the intelligence gathering that they got. >> chuck todd, for us on the lawn, as ron mott mentioned in his reporting there has been so much talk about the style of the debating, especially the way the vi
was lying, that jay carney was lying, that hillary clinton was lying and susan rice was lying and anybody else from the regime who went out and tried to blame what happened to our ambass dar at benghazi and in cairo on this video, were lying, big lifetime. >> obama, shortly after the attack, told "60 minutes" that regarding mitt romney's response to the attacks, specifically in egypt, the president said that romney has a tendency to shoot first and aim later. given the fact that so much was made out of the video, that apparently has absolutely nothing to do with the attack on benghazi, that there wasn't even a protest outside of benghazi post, didn't president obama shoot first and aim later? >> first of all, jake, i think your assessment of what we know now is not complete. this is a moving picture. and people who on the night of an attack, or the day after claim they know all the facts... without making clear that what we know is based on preliminary information, are not being straight. and they're, in some cases, trying to politicize a situation that should not be politicized. >> given
] >> secretary of state hillary clinton spoke about the september limit attack in benghazi libya's in the state department cannot prevent every act of violence directed overseas diplomats. she was the keynote speaker at a conference on north africa, hosted by the center for strategic and international studies. this is about 40 minutes. >> been none of are very hard. the first job is i want to welcome my friends, the investors morocco and algeria and the moroccan league. after a keynote address is done if you all remain in your seats to help get the party out of the room and my third task is to introduce somebody who probably needs less of an introduction than anybody in washington, general brent scowcroft is a legend in washington and is a retired lieutenant general in the air force national security visor to president gerald ford and george h. w. bush and a graduate of west point and holds a ph.d. from columbia. i think for all of us who worked with him he is a model of judgment and probity here in washington. user counselor and it's my pleasure to introduce general brent scowcroft to introduc
to be fixed. let's talk about with former chairman of the council of economic advisors under president clinton. he joins us from d.c. right now. on this show we have dismissed this idea of conspiracy, this number somehow fudged, no evidence to support that at all. in talking about that, we missed the fact the so-called real unemployment rate includes people who are discouraged, that stayed 14.7%, not good, fewer private sector jobs than forecast were added last month. again, not good. so for president obama, do you think unemployment is still a political liability at this point? >> unemployment is still too high. and much higher than i think he or indeed most of us anticipated it would be at this point in the recovery. the report was a good report. and i'm glad you agreed it wasn't a conspiracy. those folks at the statistical agencies are pretty independent. so it was a good number, but you're quite right. there are a lot of people unemployed, not just 7.8%, but the people who would like to have jobs, but maybe are not looking and -- connell: right. >> -- and have given up. we need a much stro
, for that many of them say they have castro and his socialist revolution to thank. [inaudible] >> bill clinton is such a great president, or is their something i want to say almost sexy about a man who can get away with things over and over again? >> she clearly heated been thought of as just bill clinton's wife. last november, 1998 hillary clinton showed the world what she can do on the campaign trail without him. political master, every bit as gaveling as his. >> for castro, freedom starts with education, and the literacy alone cuba would rank as one of the freest nation on earth. literacy rate is 96%. >> the new speaker was on the floor for a time holding her 6-year-old grandson ought while giving directions on how agents were to proceed. it seemed the ultimate multitasking taking care of the children and the country. >> people have called to the savior, the messiah, the messenger of change. >> i like to say that in some ways barack obama is the first president since george washington to be taking a step down into the oval office. >> we know that wind can make a cold day feel cooler, but ca
is extraordinary important and secretary clinton announced massive amount of humanitarian assistance and ku dos to the administration for doing that. the real problem here is that there's this struggle within the romney campaign itself over syria between neo-conservatives to militarily intervene and those who actually are more reticent and the problem is that mr. romney flip flops between one group and the other and can't quite decide which one is more important. the bottom line, however, for purposes of american interest in the middle east, arming a rag tag group of rebels at this point in time is inconsistent with understanding when's going to emerge of syria in the long run. one of the reasons why i'm reticent is because we don't really know who the rebels are. some of them are affiliates of al qaeda. some of them funded by saudi clerics. some of them indeed very good guys and deserve support but very much an open question of who would get the arms. we don't want to repeat afghanistan back when congressman charlie wilson was doing that very same thing and it was 0 is a many bin laden who ben
clinton, it takes some nerve to attack something that you voted for yourself. now what we need to do -- and this is a clear example. she wants to balance the deficit on the shoulders of our seniors, middle class and our students, while protecting tax breaks for multimillionaires and corporations that ship jobs overseas. >> dr. ruiz, thank you so much. we go to the last question of the night. erica, you have the honors. >> congresswoman, critics have described bolt of you as politicians who will simply vote in lock-step with your political party leadership. can you name some policies that president obama has implemented that you support? and dr. ruiz, when it's your turn, can you name policy points where you disagree with president obama? >> thank you, erica, sure. i support the bills that i passed out of the house and got passed out of the senate and made it to the president's desk and signed into lot. the safety improvement act is one. i support other bills that he has passed that he has supported. it's a lot easier for me to say what i don't support. we haven't talked about energy.
. this is important because the democratic party has done great through clinton and obama, their last two presidents, of talking about theryan is going to be the one to save entitlements into the future. it's going to be fascinating. republicans are not accustomed to having the 42-year-old talking about generational change in politics. >> we're out of time. we'll see everybody tomorrow morning. cnn newsroom with carol costello starts now. >> immoral, illegal and making the united states hate it around the world. a group of american activists are spreading that around in pakistan. live from islamabad. >>> a new government report shows two companies that employ thousands of americans may actually pose a security concern for the united states. >>> nascar drivers are questioning their safety after a 20 car pile-up at one of nascar's most famous tracks. why one driver calls it bloodthirsty. >>> the obama campaign launching a counteroffensive to a speech th hasn't happened yet. >> reckless. immaturish. that's what news media and fellow republicans called mitt romney's gaffe-filled july tour of england, is
's leadership, under secretary of state hillary clinton here. that is still unclear even after that 25-minute speech a couple of hours ago. >> he made the case that the middle east is not more stable here. that's a failure that he wants to talk about. he made a case that terrorism is on a low ebb and we don't have to worry about al qaeda, and we just had an attack the on the u.s. consulate. the administration didn't want to call it terrorism. it took 14 days to admit it was a coordinated terror attack, and that's what he wants to talk about. why wasn't the administration straight with the american people. >> let me bring you in on this. this was a remarkable moment with chuck todd. the romney campaign is talking about the case to be made for failures. let me ask you where hosni mubarak should be sptd or not. let me play what happened. >> it was a mistake. >> pushing mubarak out was the mistake? >> let me give you the answer. first of all, for two years president obama cut support of u.s. assistance for democracy in civil society in egypt. so those who eventually went to tahrir square saw that
in politics. i remember bill clinton did badly at the democratic national committee speech. he then went on jay leno and made fun and played his saxophone. romney got high boost from the first debate. two things to keep in mind. one, the polls show that the enthusiasm gap that romney has now is in his favor over obam obama. now this means that the democrats' base because they fear romney could be elected is enthusiastic. the swing voter polls in swing state they ask about taking position on this, after the debate, obama 43, romney 20. connects well with ordinary americans. obama 69. romney 7. so i think that rom lom has work to make up for himself but he did a good job. he did give himself another shot at this. the boosts like that, the boosts go away. >> dana: you pretty much the whole block so now we can kick it around the rest of the time. when you look at the number on the enthusiasm that bob mentioned, republicans are well more enthusiastic than democrats. if you are the obama campaign you get the numbers today. what goes through your mind about the $150 million you spent? >> kimber

to be a fly on the wall wherever hillary clinton is right now. >> then he comes out and he says, i meant we, barack obama and myself. i am not talking about the state department. the bigger argument is why is there no communication between the state department and the president? >> not only communication, but shouldn't you know that perhaps on september 11th in ben benghazi, the united states ambassador could use some protection. maybe without someone telling you. >> they had 13 incidents before that. >> that's it? >> you don't mean condoms, do you? >> this is an obvious case where the obama administration dropped the ball. it is the only place in the foreign policy the last four years you can attack and drill down in a debate. it was perfect for ryan to do. the republican party was smart to do it. >> i don't think ryan drilled down enough on it. it was the first question and then ryan mentioned all of that stuff. and then suddenly he pivoted to iraq and afghanistan. he should have stayed on libya and hammered them. >> i don't think voters care enough about it. it would have looked like a w
was tough on japan. i think it's -- >> even clinton was going to be tough on china and wasn't. >> sure. he really overshot. he used the butchers of beijing and brought a lot of issues. i think our trade relation with china are generally positive, but there is an area of malfeasance. there is room for improvement. >> too aggressive? >> i don't know. one thing he clearly decided, he's not going to let obama outflank hill on that issue. here's the difference. both can be a bad cop china, but romney's also a good cop to work out a positive trade agenda to grow the economy as well. >> let me ask you about ohio. it's your home state. what's been happening there? maybe things have shrunk. what were you thinking? >> i still get the sense obama's ahead. i think that might have been a obama high point. i think he was trending down, then the debate happened. i just came back from a few days in ohio. i think he's outspending romney on tv there. i think they both have a very strong ground game. sherrod brown's probably a point or two up on that as well. so i think it comes to the next two debates. it's
looking to jfk, harry truman, even bill clinton in his second term as presidents that they are looking at in terms of shaping a potential doctrine in the future. last week a lot of people you heard a lot of pundits on the right and left saying maybe mitt romney is moving to the middle on domestic policy issues, perhaps we'll see a little bit of that today in the foreign policy realm. >> stand by if you will. thank you for that as the crowd begins to build hint you and all eyes on romney's speech this morning and the president for his part couldn't be farther aw away. he is out west. he might be speaking to some. he is drumming up money from a-listers and wig money doen ars. brie on akeilar is live with us and looking to at $10 million to the $181 million he raised last month. what is the plan of attack? >> he needs the money. i will tell you, ashley, tomorrow he is going to ohio which is a key battleground state where he is doing better in the optimpolls than mitt rom. the other thing he is doing is dedicating a memorial to caesar chavez, aid latino icon and founder of the american far
was that in 2007 and 2008 running against hillary clinton, running against barack obama, it was biden who are often than not who would steal the show at those democratic debates. it never actually translated into votes for him but he impressed people in the obama campaign as somebody they wanted to have out there. you go farther back in his career when he first ran for president in 1988, he got derailed by a bit of a plagiarism scandal, but when he was using his own words, he was one heck of an orator. that was his reputation. a really strong communicator. i look at biden and his debate skills and communication skills, and i say escapable of doing what barack obama either couldn't or wouldn't do last week against mitt romney. >> right. professor reich, paul ryan is known for being an encyclopedia of numbers but can he effectively counter headlines like this one today, "gm to add 2,000 jobs in michigan"? if this race comes down to ohio and the auto rescue plays a major role there, that's a tough headline to counter for mr. ryan, isn't it? >> it certainly is. and what people in ohio and in the midwes
people. flash forward, you're hillary clinton now. you have to negotiate with a muslim brotherhood president of egypt who is in a -- just new to the job in a very frail and weak situation. you've got a revolution in syria, there's basically no one to deal with. you could deal with haefz but he can't deliver six blocks beyond his palace and in israel you have a minority government led baby by netanyahu that is an extreme government. it's michele bachmann 20 times over. so it's not exactly an environment conducive for great heroic foreign policy. mama, tell your daughters not to grow up to secretaries of state, not now. you want to be secretary of education, not secretary of state. >> rose: (laughs) so what ought to be the foreign policy debate in this campaign? >> well, i tell you what i've been focused on and i think it's about making our own country strong, charlie. making our own country an object of emulation. because that's the greatest thing about america. we have the power of emulation, people will follow and copy us in a way that china and russia can't. china has to bully or
and what are you going through right now. secretary of state hillary clinton is praising the decision. >> let me congratulate the european union on its nobel peace prize. certainly it's quite remarkable to see how unified and peaceful europe is in the 21st century. >> and joining me now, "newsweek" columnist, cnbc contributor zachary carabel. it's interesting this quote from the woman in greece who said is this a joke? it mocks us and what we are going through right now. that was one person's reaction in greece. >> this was an easy softball for some degree of ridicule. i read the headline and briefly thought someone had sent me a link to the onion. in all fairness, part of what the point is, the eu was the source of the greatest global destruction in the first part of 209th century that the planet has ever known. for these group of nations that were at each other's throats for centuries to make gradual steps from 1957 to the pren is the come together is in fact historically unusual and has benefited the planet. i know that sounds hopelessly idealistic and atypically noncynical but to
